Congratulations! You are on your way to having a baby. This will be a life-defining moment and we want to make it as comfortable as possible. At Family Chiropractic Spinal Health Care Center, we specialize in chiropractic technique for pregnancy. Our primary concern is providing you with safe, non-invasive support for your body during this time of great physical change. We keep the mother-to-be feeling healthy and help maintain the nurturing environment of the womb.
Chiropractic treatment during pregnancy has a wealth of benefits:
- Maintain pelvic balance
- Maintain proper curvature of the spine
- Reduce aches and pains
- Decrease stress
- Decrease tension on the womb
- Increase immune function
During pregnancy, a woman’s body releases reproductive hormones that weaken the pelvic region by relaxing ligaments to make way for the passage of the baby. The added weight of the baby lowers her center of gravity and puts pressure on the pelvic region. These factors can put excess pressure on the spine, damage tissues and contribute to back pain and sciatica. Furthermore, if the pelvic region is allowed to fall out of alignment, it can reduce the room available for your baby to grow and make the birthing process more difficult.
Chiropractic adjustment keeps the spine, particularly the pelvic region, in alignment. We also offer massage services that help reduce physical and mental stress and ease discomfort associated with pregnancy. If you are interested in finding out how chiropractic can benefit you and your baby, we would love to help. Call our New Jersey offices at (201) 995-9900.
